  • You can use the Flip Content UI Pattern to display information that when, for example, is clicked, flips and displays different information.

    How to use the Flip content UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Flip Content.

      The Flip Content widget is displayed.

      If the UI widget does not display, it may be because you used a ready-made app, which deletes unused widgets from the module. To make additional widgets available in your app:

      a. Go to Module > Manage dependencies.

      b. Search for and select the relevant Producer, for example OutSystemsUI. Ensure Show All is selected.

      c. On the Public elements for the selected Producer displayed on the right, ensure Show All is selected.

      d. Search for and select the element you want to add, and click Apply.

      e. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for the widget again.

    2. From the Toolbox, drag the Flip Content widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.

      By default, the Flip Content widget contains CardFront and CardBack placeholders.

    3. Add the required content for the front and back placeholders inside the Flip Content widget.

      In this example, we add images by dragging the Image widget into the CardFront and CardBack placeholders and from the Image dropdown, selecting an image from the sample OutSystems UI images.

    4. On the Properties tab, you can customize the Flip Content's look and feel by setting any of the (optional) properties.

    After following these steps and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.


    Property Description
    IsFlipped (Boolean): Optional If True, the CardFront content is displayed first before flipping. If False, the CardBack content is displayed first before flipping. This is the default.
    FlipSelf (Boolean): Optional If True, the content flips event is triggered with on click. This is the default. If False, you can define the action that triggers the flip.
    ExtendedClass (Text): Optional Adds custom style classes to the Pattern. You define your custom style classes in your application using CSS.


    • Blank - No custom styles are added (default value).
    • "myclass" - Adds the myclass style to the UI styles being applied.
    • "myclass1 myclass2" - Adds the myclass1 and myclass2 styles to the UI styles being applied.
    You can also use the classes available on the OutSystems UI. For more information, see the OutSystems UI Live Style Guide.
